A few weeks ago, I noticed this gel-setter polish in Target. (Are you sensing a theme here?) I was a leeeeetle bit skeptical. I can’t lie: I love a gel mani. I mean, I really, really love how shiny and strong it makes my nails look.
But I hate the UV light curing process (hello, wrinkles and sun damage!) and how it makes my nails feel when it finally (after a lot of work) comes off. And how expensive it is!
I’ve tried so many at-home varnishes that promise the gel look, but none deliver.
This one delivers. I got nice and shiny nails. Though it didn’t last as long as a professional job, it didn’t chip and crack until about a week later (I am a constant hand-washer). And by then I was ready for a color change anyway.
I love coacha’bella. It’s lurid and lovely. It’s the perfect color for my toes. I’m not quite that wild on my hands. I know. A woman who writes erotic romance can’t wear bright color nail varnish? I guess we all have our oddities.
